Kids SessionMy BoysOregon Coast, Or

My Boys

Sadly I am not the photographer who documents every moment of life for my kids in beautiful professional portraits. I wish I was. Those mom-togs with their beautifully imperfect lives perfectly documented..  what beautiful heirlooms they are creating! I tend to put my big camera away and take out my iphone when I am not working, which in one sense I love, because I am present, but it’s easy to let too much time pass between making those heirloom worthy images of my own children. This session was actually taken two summers ago. It is always a pretty big bribe to get my kids to pose for me, but this day they were being playful and I think it was captured well so I decided to share. We are currently overdue again!


Wedding InspirationOcean SessionOregon Coast, Oregon

Ocean Session

I find that I am most alive and inspired on a sunny day on the Oregon Coast. This session with gorgeous Anandi was no exception. This shoot was visualized, stylized and realized by my talented dear friend Jenni Kupelian (check out her work she has an amazing eye for design and simplicity. Her photos have always inspired me and I have learned so much from the times we shoot together!
